Critically acclaimed Lord Huron have added further tour dates throughout the summer, including various festival slots and a special performance with The National at Celebrate Brooklyn in Prospect Park. The new dates round out a massive year of touring for Lord Huron, including their largest U.S. headlining run, a large-scale U.K. outing, and numerous sold-out shows nationwide, in additional to appearances at major festivals including Coachella, Bonnaroo, Firefly and Newport Folk Festival. Of Lord Huron's live set, Rolling Stone admires their "remarkably full sound" while Filter notes they "keep the energy hopeful and alive." See below for further details.
The video for their current single "She Lit A Fire" is now streaming at The New York Times: http://bit.ly/1jNm5KS. The band's debut album Lonesome Dreams, continues to garner widespread praise-USA Today explains, "the indie-folk band paints a vivid landscape with upbeat, warm melodies and the dreamy vocals," while The New York Times describes the music as, "pretty, multilayered Americana strumming and harmonizing." The band made their first network television appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and most recently performed on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"
Originally a musical and visual solo project by lead singer and Michigan native-turned-Angeleno Ben Schneider, collaborators now include Mark Barry (percussion, vocals), Miguel Briseno (bass, percussion), and Tom Renaud (guitar, vocals). Schneider started playing music as a child-most often on summer nights around the campfire on Lake Huron. He went on to study art in college and lived in France and New York before moving to Los Angeles in 2005 to pursue a career in the visual arts.
Schneider's passion for art and music are often intertwined, and he has composed music for various visual art projects over the years. In 2010, Schneider self-released his first EP, Into the Sun, online, complete with original artwork. The songs gained traction and Schneider set to work recruiting musicians to help him translate the recordings into a live performance.
